  • Amazing place to visit if you love art and art culture. Museum is superb and beyond my imagination. Leather puppet gallery is excellent. Many great artist's drawings from different parts of India give you immense pleasure in the gallery. Ticket is only Rs.10/- which is unbelievable. Must visit to see how the artists are doing their work who are mostly the student of Academy of Fine Arts College. The compound is really a picturesque under banyan tree, Whenever I get the time I visited there, Please take a chance when you are in Bangalore.
